In response to the reduced threat against the United States, Congress has directed the Department of Defense (DoD) to reduce spending. As funds are reduced, targets of opportunity are shifting from the battlefield to the appropriation field. Dollars invested in inventories are a prime target of cost reduction. This thesis examines existing inventory management policies at the Supervisor of Shipbuilding, Newport News, VA(SUPSHIPNN). It provides a decision support system, called the DSS Strategy model. The results of simulation indicate that inventory managers at SUPSHIPNN can use the DSS Strategy model to make decisions that will reduce inventories and meet production target dates. Successful management of inventories in not a cost saving measure alone. The judicious use of valuable inventory and associated resources will maintain the fleet in the highest possible state of readiness within constricting fiscal resources.
